Massive caterpillar

Just to prove that I'm not a complete animal-hater (as recent Geek Pop podcasts might suggest), and as a nod to Sounds of Science colleague Jim's new bug blog, I'm posting pics of a MASSIVE green caterpillar found by holiday buddies in Ontario, Canada.

We watched Monarch butterflies sunning themselves on the decking at our cottage by the lake in Haliburton and were curious as to whether these caterpillars might eventually BE Monarchs. Perhaps Jim, or someone else, can tell me?
